Camp Mount Tom
Serving NYC families since 1955, Mount Tom is one of the closest private, suburban camps to all areas of Manhattan. Mount Tom provides a safe and supportive environment for children ages 3-14 to learn, grow, and have fun. Mount Tom believes a positive camp experience enhances a child's physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development. “The Mount Tom Difference” is its proven staff model, featuring experienced educators spending the entire day working directly with campers. As a result, campers are better able to learn life skills such as building and maintaining friendships, taking healthy risks, overcoming fears, teamwork, self-confidence, and determination. Children participate in a well-rounded schedule of activities including daily Red Cross swim instruction, team and individual sports, cultural and performing arts, STEM, nature, outdoor adventure (rock climbing, ropes course, and zip line), electives, and wonderful special events.
